We are halfway through the summer and all my exciting tricks are not so exciting anymore so I’m turning to the Internet to help me. And not just Netflix.
Here’s some of my crafts and activity finds to keep the second part of summer as amazing as the first:
Doll Swing Craft: Only $3 at the Dollar Store (less if you have fancy duct tape sitting around like me).
Handprint art: Only $5 — depending on how much paint and paper you want — and this is a great project because every age can do it even the babies!
- Sun, Butterfly and Caterpillars from Pinkie for Pink
- Handprint Campfires (third picture down) from The Bergman Life
Shaving Cream Balloons: Water fights are so last month and a $1 worth of shaving cream can fill 15 water balloons!
Ladybug rocks: Cost will depend on how much craft stuff you have hanging around and how good you are at stealing smooth oval rocks, but if you have nothing, this craft would be about $20 — although half of that is the acrylic matte sealer spray, which is only necessary if you’re going to display them for life.
Sock bubbles: Move over sticks because that random sock in the dryer is much cooler. Plus, this craft is free if you skip the food coloring.
I have more summer ideas for trips, cooking, local activities, and crafts on my Summer Adventures pinterest board if you’re getting bored, too.
